Nolan Middle School has found many of our students have difficulty with speed and accuracy in typing. As you know, NMS has a huge focus on your student as a 21st century learner, and our students' success depends on the ability to communicate electronically. Finally, many of our state assessments have moved to online sessions, requiring students to type responses.
We have found many of our students who learned to type using online tutorials have increased time spent answering a given question, rather than spending time concentrating on typing.
We are asking that you assist us in these endeavors by encouraging your student to practice keyboarding at home. Please visit the links below for FREE keyboarding practice modules and speed tests.
Your student’s goal should be about 40 words per minute. Please challenge your student to meet these goals to provide them with a needed tool for success.
Thank you for all you do to continue to enhance your child's educational success!
